Sterling is used as a substitution for for Saaz.

I understand that, but my point is..... if their quest is to make an exact clone, why do they use sterling?

Breweries often substitute ingredients, I'm sure if you listen to the podcast they'd cover it. If I remember right the website says they use light carastan 13-17 for Dead Guy, but the clone recipe uses GW crystal 15 as that is what they're currently using in the beer.

I wondered the same thing... then after a bit of hop research, found sterling to be a near identical saaz substitute, although it is twice the avg AA - so for a 5G batch, its much more efficient/cheaper to go w/sterling... you'd have to buy twice the hops/oz to get the same IBUs with Saaz. Saaz is very expensive to use when going for bigger beers like this.

Brewed this one on 3/26/12. Awesome results!
SG: 1.066, FG: 1.012, IBU: 49, SRM: 8.2, ABV: 7.1%.
Used Gambrinus Pale Malt, Munich, & Crystal 20 & 10L, Perle & Centennial whole hops, Wyeast 1764 yeast. Fermented 5 days at 60, 5 days at 62, & 9 days at 66 degrees. Tastes great (I'm drinking a pint right now)! Thanks for posting these recipes!

My OG was 1.072 and FG 1.010. I guess my efficiency is a bit better than expected. I fermented @ 60 F for two weeks, up to 70 F for a week, then slowly down to 45 to clarify.

I can't wait to taste it!

Maier plainly states in the interview that Rogue no longer uses US Saaz in Dead Guy. They have moved to Sterling. There is better availability.

Can you just confirm.. a 90 min boil, and the first hop addition is for 90 minutes? I've never boiled hops for 90 minutes before.

Thanks,

Yep, this is a 90 min boil with first hop addition going in for 90 min. You will get better hop utilization this way.
